GET TO KNOW CBD
CANNABIS FOR WOMEN
Choosing the path to hemp that is right for you can be overwhelming, regardless if you’re a first-time or returning user. W!NK™ is dedicated to empowering women who want to enjoy the therapeutic effects of cannabis and hemp-derived CBD products. Understanding your journey is a large part of your life with hemp.
The education is vast, but we're happy to guide you through the basics: CBD and THC are the two most prominent cannabinoids found in Cannabis, the plant genus that includes both CBD (hemp) + THC (marijuana).
Both interact with the body through the endocannabinoid system — an important physiologic system involved in establishing + maintaining human health by regulating a wide array of functions — some of which include: pain, mood, memory, immune response, sleep + cycles of cellular life.
The Cannabis plant contains 60+ naturally occurring, active compounds called cannabinoids. Of those 60+ compounds, Cannabidiol (CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the most common. The THC cannabinoid is responsible for producing the mind-altering psychoactive effects known as “the high”.
Unlike THC, the CBD cannabinoid is non-intoxicating yet still maintains the same therapeutic benefits of Cannabis without “the high”. Cannabis plants are divided into two crops: hemp (also known as Industrial Hemp) and marijuana — each with different cannabinoid ratios.
Influences a wide range of receptor systems throughout the whole body to increase naturally-produced cannabinoids:
Extracted from Marijuana (female) plant
THC is responsible for most of the physiological effects that each user feels, but additional terpene and minor cannabinoid molecules accompanying it can modulate these effects considerably to a mind-altering capacity. Contains on average 18%+ THC.
INVOKES + ALLEVIATES
Sleep + Drowsiness
THC is only available in states where marijuana is medically or recreationally legal.
Extracted from Hemp (male) plant
CBD can counteract the psycho-activity of THC and is less psychoactive that THC-dominant strains without the disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria. Contains less than 0.3% THC.
INVOKES + ALLEVIATES
Pain + Inflammation
Eczema + Psoriasis
Stress + Anxiety
Menstrual Side Effects
Due to its non-intoxicating properties, W!NK™ CBD products are currently legal in all 50 states.
Hemp plants are either imported from Europe or grown in the United States (under research and development purposes approved by the government.) "Hemp grown" CBD is legally sold nationally and is lawful to cross state lines, therefore making it a national product.
To be legal across state lines, W!NK™ sources industrial hemp from Europe that contains less than 0.3% THC which classifies our products under the Farm Bill, like many of your other beauty products.
